5 Stats from Gonzaga’s WCC Title Game Win Over BYU

  1. 15—15, the number of consecutive West Coast Conference title game appearances by Gonzaga.
  2. 45—45, the number of points scored by Gonzaga’s front line. The three-headed monster of Przemek Karnowski, Kyle Wiltjer and Domantas Sabonis also pulled in 20 rebounds while registering three assists and a block. BYU’s front line combined for a mere 11 points.
  3. 14—14, the number shots it took BYU scoring machine Tyler Haws to reach 15 points. Gary Bell played lockdown defense on the Cougars’ guard while he was in the game and had a massive effect. While scoring at will against just about everyone else, Haws struggled against Gonzaga this season, partly due to Bell. He was 6 of 14 on Tuesday and also posted 10 points (his second lowest total of the season) in the two teams’ last meeting. Haws also went 4 for 12 in an earlier loss to GU earlier in the year.
  4. 18—18, the number of minutes played by freshman phenom Domantas Sabonis. The forward poured in 15 points, grabbed six rebounds and had a single assist and a block. He was also an ultra-efficient 7 of 8 at the free throw line.
  5. 28—points by BYU standout Kyle Collinsworth. The triple-double threat single-handedly kept his team close, but took a whopping 22 shots to get to 28 points.
